Social Networking (Memphis)

BDPA Memphis chapter, founded June 1995, is currently the 31st largest chapter in the nation. The chapter looks to significantly increase their membership numbers in the coming weeks and months by providing African American IT professionals with technical education and networking opportunities. One of those networking opportunities is the Semi-Annual Social Networking event.

The 2008 BDPA Semi-Annual Social Networking event introduces BDPA Memphis chapter to anyone interested in advancing the careers of African Americans in the information technology industry from the classroom to the boardroom. This social networking event is a vehicle to meet new people and form relationships that benefit the organization, the individual and the community.

During this social, you will receive details on BDPA's 2008 initiatives and volunteer opportunites. There will also be a special presentation from Digerati Search Inc. (DSI). DSI specializes in talent acquisition exclusively for the Information Technology industry. The company provides a full range of placement services for contract, contract-for-hire, and direct hire of IT professionals as well as recruitment, hiring and career consultancy.

Please spread the word to all of your colleagues and invite Memphis-area IT professionals to come out and take a look at BDPA. Also, please bring your business cards to participate in drawings for door prizes and giveaways provided by DSI. Refreshments will be served.
